The University of Leicester: Rethink Your Mind
The University of Leicester Yellow Book was been created using photography, art, poetry and illustrations submitted by students and staff inspired by #IFeelBetterWhen and has been designed as a source of inspiration and support for everyone who at anytime can experience mental health struggles.
About the project
“We are so pleased to have had the opportunity to bring the Yellow Book to the University of Leicester. We thought it would be a fantastic way to bring the University community together to create art and use this tool as a means to positively express wellbeing. The responses to running this project were fantastic from staff and students at the University and we are delighted with the quality and range of pieces that were submitted. We hope this will continue to have a positive effect and encourage people to try something new that has a positive effect on their wellbeing.
It has been a fantastic tool to bring people together and start conversations about how people can empower themselves to proactively support their own mental health and wellbeing. The UoL Yellow Book will support our staff, students and our community to embrace the ethos of the book and celebrate the power of positive creative expression.”
